DCLM Day by day Manna 30 August 2022 Devotional By Pastor W. F. Kumuyi — The Solely True Gospel
TOPIC: The Solely True Gospel (DCLM Day by day Manna 30 August 2022)
TEXT: Galatians 1:1-9 (KJV)
1 Paul, an apostle, (not of males, neither by man, however by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the lifeless;)
2 And all of the brethren that are with me, unto the church buildings of Galatia:
3 Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,
4 Who gave himself for our sins, that he would possibly ship us from this current evil world, in line with the desire of God and our Father:
5 To whom be glory without end. Amen.
6 I marvel that ye are so quickly faraway from him that referred to as you into the grace of Christ unto one other gospel:
7 Which isn’t one other; however there be some that hassle you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
8 However although we, or an angel from heaven, preach every other gospel unto you than that which we’ve preached unto you, let him be accursed.
9 As we stated earlier than, so say I now once more, if any man preach every other gospel unto you than that ye have obtained, let him be accursed.
KEY VERSE: “However although we, or an angel from heaven, preach every other gospel unto you than that which we’ve preached unto you, let him be accursed” (Galatians 1:8).
Charles Spurgeon as soon as stated, “the spotless purity of reality should at all times be at struggle with the blackness of heresy and lies”. One other minister of God additionally stated, “essentially the most harmful gospel is the one that appears like the actual factor however just isn’t”. The “gospel” which has “a type of godliness however [denies] the ability thereof”, the “gospel” that can’t produce an actual transformation of character whereby “previous issues are handed away (and) all issues are develop into new” just isn’t the gospel of Christ. That type of “gospel” is pretend.
Apostle Paul establishes the reality of his divine calling. He stated he was an apostle, “not of males, neither by man, however by Jesus Christ, and God the Father”. He questioned that the Galatian believers have been being seduced from Christ quickly after their conversion “into one other gospel”. He went on to position an awesome curse on anybody [including himself or an angel from heaven], that can preach every other gospel to them, besides the true gospel of Christ that he had preached already to them. It was a sobering declaration.
The gospel of Christ is straightforward and easy. It’s “that Christ died for our sins in line with the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose once more the third day in line with the scriptures” (1 Corinthians 15:3, 4).
The life-changing gospel results in true godliness and proper relationship with God and everlasting life. We should, subsequently, take heed “lest any man spoil [us] by philosophy and useless deceit, after the custom of males… and never after Christ. For in him dwelleth… the fulness of the Godhead bodily. And [we] are full in him” (Colossians 2:8-10).
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Solely the gospel of Christ actually modifications life and character.
